Charlotte, N.C. — Essentia Inc. is proud to be Certified™ by Great Place to Work® — a prestigious recognition based entirely on what current employees say about their experience at the company. This year, 73% of employees said that Essentia is a great place to work, which is 14 points higher than the average U.S. company.
Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention, and increased innovation.
“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily – it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Essentia is one of the best companies to work for in the country.”
Areas in which employees awarded Essentia top marks include the following:
- 91% of employees said that Management is honest and ethical in its business practices.
- 95% of employees said that Essentia celebrates people who try new and better ways of doing things, regardless of the outcome
- 95% of employees said that when you join the company, you are made to feel welcome.
“We take a similar approach to building our culture that we do to building our customer solutions: we look for a better way to do everything,” said Lindon Hayes, co-founder and CEO of Essentia. “Because we’re automating engineering processes that were once highly manual processes, our team members are spending less time on tedious tasks and more time on the innovative work that’s far more rewarding.”
Hayes added, “The Great Place to Work-Certified™ recognition is a tremendous validation of this approach, as well as a roadmap showing which areas of our culture to focus on moving forward.”.
According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits and have a fair chance at promotion.
